Here at ADEME - The French Agency for Ecological Transition - we are firmly committed to fighting global warming and the depletion of our natural resources. On all fronts, we mobilise citizens, economic actors and territories towards a fairer, more harmonious, low carbon and resource-efficient society. Whatever the field - energy, circular economy, food, mobility, air quality, adaptation to climate change, soils, etc. - we advise, facilitate and help finance many projects, from research to solutions sharing. At every level, our expertise and forecasting capacities serve to guide and inform public policies. ADEME is a public agency under the joint authority of the Ministry for an Ecological Transition and the Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation.

Partner: LETCHI Network

The Low Energy in Tropical Climate for Housing Innovation (LETCHI) platform serves as a network of architects and building energy professionals in tropical zones, dedicated to the promotion of the bioclimatic design of buildings (mostly residential), by providing case studies and other resources from countries represented in the network. Experts of this network have been actively involved in the MOOC as developers and trainers.

Partner: PEEB

PEEB combines financing for energy efficiency in large-scale projects with technical assistance through policy advice to governments and expertise for building sector professionals. PEEB was initiated by the governments of France and Germany and is implemented by Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ GmbH) and the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME). The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) is currently funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the French Ministry for an Ecological Transition (MTE), the Agence Française de Developpement (AFD) and the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM). PEEB is catalysed by the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC).
